This week we held our transition morning in preparation for next academic year. Transition Mornings are an important part of the transition process as they support pupils to move from their current year group or school to their new one with the least amount of stress and worry.
We were delighted to welcome newly enrolled pupils to the RGS as pupils from Reception to Year 8 spent time in their new classrooms, working alongside their new classmates. Pupils initially met in their phase groups before they set off for their new classrooms where they started to get to know each other and took part in a wide variety of activities.
Teachers who are already based in Qatar came along for the morning and those teachers who are currently in the UK sent videos and presentations to be shared with the pupils who will be in their classes next year.
It was lovely to welcome a large number of new parents who spent the morning listening to presentations from some of our current parents and Parents’ Association members. There was also an opportunity for them to socialise and ask questions. Thank you to our current parents who came along to help make our new parents feel welcome and part of the RGS community.
